IWC special edition
Since 2005, as part of its social responsibility, IWC Schaffhausen has been one of the main sponsors of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, an organization that brings together top-flight sport and social commitment at a high level. Laureus comprises the Laureus World Sports Academy, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Laureus World Sports Awards. Collectively, these three elements form the essence of Laureus, harnessing the power of sport to promote social change and celebrating sporting excellence.
The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” is the 12th special edition IWC launches as part of its commitment to support the Laureus foundation. This timepiece, housed in a case made of black ceramic, has a midnight blue dial and black hands that are coated with luminescence. The movement is protected against magnetic fields by a soft-iron inner case, and the glass is secured against sudden drops in pressure. On the case back made of titanium, there is an engraving of the drawing by 11-year-old Ana Claudia from Brazil, on the subject “Time to be Healthy”. Ana was the winner of the drawing competition that IWC organizes each year within the foundation’s projects. This watch, which is limited to 1500 numbered pieces, is fitted with an embossed black calfskin strap.
